Orange County Oil Spill Damaging Various Industries – You Can Sue


Orange County Oil Spill Damaging Various Industries – You Can Sue lawyer attorney compensation lawsuit sue

On Friday (October 1, 2021), residents of Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and Laguna Beach reported a strange smell in the air, similar to gas. On Saturday (October 2, 2021), an oil spill was identified. As a result several Orange County beaches were closed, events were canceled, and clean-up efforts began. The oil spill has since been controlled, but only after 126,000 gallons of oil spilled into the ocean. The oil spill is believed to be a result of a damaged pipeline connected to Elly, an oil platform about 6 mills offshore. The oil platform is operated by Beta Offshore, which is a Long Beach unit of Houston’s Amplify Energy. The oil spill can be seen stretching approximately 6 miles from Huntington Beach to Dana Point.

When we think of an oil spill, most of us automatically think of the wildlife that is affected – as we have seen plenty of heartbreaking images in the past of wildlife washing up on shore covered in oil. Because on the focus on wildlife, some of the other effects of oil spills often go ignored. Many industries, including the fishing industry and tourism industry, among others, are affected by oil spills – with businessowners and property owners facing unimaginable financial losses.

Depending on how you were affected by the oil spill that is affecting beaches in Huntington, Newport, and Laguna, you might have grounds to sue. In fact, you could have grounds to participate in an Amplify Energy class action lawsuit for the property damage and other financial losses caused by the oil spill. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue, it is essential that you seek legal assistance immediately.

How the Oil Spill has Affected Different Industries

The oil spill has damaged multiple industries. Although the effect that the oil spill has had and will continue to have is not immediately obvious, it is important that it does not go unseen.

The most obvious industry affected is the fishing industry. Oil spills are toxic to wildlife. Fish die due to the oil and wash up on shore – this dramatically decreases their numbers. Surviving fish are often contaminated and no longer safe for consumption. Without a doubt, this applies to fish and other wildlife, like shrimp, crabs, shellfish, etc.

If the fishing industry is hurting, then the restaurant industry is also hurting. Many of these restaurants along Orange County beaches depend on the local fishing industry to keep fresh fish, shrimp, etc. on their menus for an appropriate price. Without the local fishing industry, restaurant owners have to look for product elsewhere, which can be very expensive and often sacrifices quality.

Likewise, the tourist industry is also affected. Many people book ocean-front hotels with the expectation that they will be able to spend a lot of time at the beach. If beaches are closed due to oil spills, tourism will reduce significantly, resulting in loss of business revenue for hotels and motels alike. This also applies to short-term vacation rentals available through Airbnb and similar services.

Unfortunately, real estate is also among the industries that can be affected by an oil spill. When the local economy comes to a halt and the wildlife and views are compromised, property values decrease significantly.
